These API calls can be programmatic requests initiated from a user using an SDK, the AWS command line interface, from within the AWS management console or even from a request made by another AWS service.

Amazon Macie: The main function of the service is to provide an automatic method of detecting, identifying, and also classifying data that you are storing within your AWS account.

Amazon GuardDuty: Aregional-based intelligent threat detection service which allows users to monitor their AWS account for unusual and unexpected behavior by analyzing AWS CloudTrail event logs, VPC flow logs, and DNS logs. It then uses the data from logs and assesses them against multiple security and threat detection feeds, looking for anomalies and known malicious sources, such as IP addresses and URLs.

AWS Config: Captures and tracks resource changes within your environment along with other useful metadata which is held within a file known as a configuration item, a CI.

Amazon Inspector: This is a managed service that is used to help you find security vulnerabilities within your EC2 instances and any applications running on them during any stage of development and deployment.
